This, of any recorded music I own, is my favorite. You can say what you want, but the second disc of this set is among the most exhilerating American music ever recorded. It belongs alongside anything done by Miles or Coletrane, any Hendrix solo, any Delta Blues anthropological treasure. It belongs alongsde the Carter Family, Scott Joplin, John Cage, Ella Fitzgerald or Frank Sinatra at their finest. It starts with "Estimated Prophet" and ends up with a cataclysimc "Morning Dew". Absolutely flawless, painfully beautiful, unforgettable. This is what the Dead was all about, what youth is all about, what life is all about. You think I'm overstating it? Listen for yourself.

This record made my world stop! I've been listning to the Grateful Dead since I saw them live in '95. Of all of the shows that I've heard I am convinced that this was the night that God Himself touched Jerry Garcia on the head with his finger. "Eyes of the World" on disc two all the way through "Walk Me Out In The Morning Dew" is the finest music that I have ever heard in my entire life. This set changed my outlook on life. It made me realize that music is more than just sound. It is an expression of life itself. The sound is alive and crackling with energy. I've listened to disc two more than 100 times and I know I keep finding something that I've never heard before everytime!

Although there seems to a consensus (though not universal) among Deadheads that the 5-8-77 show at Cornell's Barton Hall was not only the best show on the spring '77 tour, but also the best show the Dead ever put on, a little history is in order.

As almost any Deadhead knows, the Barton Hall show was the first high-quality tape that began circulating widely among tape traders (and not that long after the concert itself). Given its wide dissemination for some 30 years now -- and given that it was, indeed, an excellent show -- it's no wonder it ranks at the top.

But this show at the long-gone Hollywood Sportatorium (now the site of a Sedano's Supermarket) in Pembroke Pines, coming some two weeks later, arguably equals, if not surpasses, Barton Hall. The late Dick Latvala (the Dick of Dick's Picks for the uninitiated) said of this show that it "tears Ithaca apart" and "rips it to shreds."

Indeed.

The band is on. Totally on. One of the endearing things about the Dead is the occasional sloppiness in playing and singing. It's not here. The band is tight. No one makes a mistake. There are no sour notes. There is no out of tune singing or harmonizing. Just pure, unadulterated musicianship from a band at the very summit of its artistic prowess.

You will not hear a finer version of "Sugaree" anywhere else. Garcia blows the roof off with rhythmic soloing here. The Help > Slipknot > Franklin is the best yet uncovered. Jerry again. And the last almost-hour of this collection represents the Dead at their finest improvisational jamming best: an incredible segue of jams starting with Estimated Prophet, moving into Eyes of the World, then Wharf Rat, which magically and seamlessly turns into the middle of Terrapin Station, and finally Morning Dew.

This is a slice of 1977 Dead from the month of May. On that tour, the band performed a series of powerful shows that were captured on tape for the band by Betty Cantor. These shows were stashed in a trunk for years, until they were found by a kind soul who then made them available to the band and the Deadheads. And what a find they were. This show comes from that era, and upon listening, you can hear the full, swaggering sound the Dead was laying out at that time. The whole band seems to be having fun and they play and sing with confidence and creativity.
It's not the complete show from this night in Florida, but with a first set that opens with a fluid, stomping Music>Sugaree and closes with a ripping Help>Slip>Franklin's, you get more than your money's worth on Disc 1 alone. Disc 2 builds quickly and springboards from a robust 1977 Estimated Prophet to four straight Jerry songs. A blissful, fully explored Eyes Of The World, then into a majestic Wharf Rat, before ending up somewhere halfway in the middle of Terrapin Station - which they pull off effortlessly - before segueing perfectly into the showstopper, Morning Dew. Deadheads will recall the famous Cornell show from 2 weeks before and the awe-inspiring Dew Jerry and the boys produced that evening. While not quite the equal of Cornell, the peaks they reach from a near silent start in this version are no less stunning.

This is my favorite Dick's Pick, and I really love some of the others. While I normally gravitate to the 72 - 74 era, this show is hands down one of the Dead's most spectacular musical performances. The uninterupted jamming from Estimated through to Morning Dew is a flawless masterpiece of improvisition.
This is why I loved that Band!

I'm the type of person who likes all sorts of music, the type who can talk to anyone about music no matter what their tastes, including rap, house, rock, acoustic, you name it. I think that the end of the second disc is perhaps the most beautiful piece of music I have ever heard, from Estimated Prophet all the way through Morning Dew. I was once driving home to Massachusetts from Canada, in the Vermont Green Mountains as the sun was setting one summer, and tears came to my eyes when I heard the last guitar solo during Morning Dew. However, the last few songs has it all: exhiliarating moments, innumerable beautiful moments, thought-provoking lyrics, and music influenced from everything from reggae to classical. Thank you for the music, it is truly beautiful!!
